Workshop at new york university and university of connecticut
In November, 2015, Mirek took PIP to the USA. Invited over by NYU Professor Mike Beckerman, expert in Czech classical music, Mirek introduced Mike's students to the traditions of Czech marionettes. What better way to get to know Dvorak than to carve a puppet inspired by a characters from an Antonin Dvorak opera and then shoot short films about them? Then he went up to the MFA program in the puppet department at the University of Connecticut.
